Highlights

  • The economy is dominated by the mining and energy sector.
  • Under its Vision 2050, PNG aims to produce all its electricity from renewables by 2050.
  • Oil Search and ExxonMobil dominate the oil and gas sector. Around 2/3 of the power capacity is operated by industrial autoproducers.
  • PNG's power grid is fragmented and suffers from frequent outages.
  • Gas production has more than doubled since 2014.
  • Total energy consumption is predominantly made up of oil and biomass. Gas consumption is increasing.
  • PNG aims to add a capacity of 6.8 Mt/year of LNG liquefaction through the Papua LNG project.
  • New hydropower projects may add a significant capacity in PNG.

Abstract

  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Papua New Guinea (PNG for short) occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea (the western part belongs to Indonesia).

    The energy sector is under the control of the Department of Petroleum and Energy (DPE), through two main divisions: Petroleum Division (oil and gas) and Energy Division (electricity and renewables).

  • Energy Companies

    Electricity:

    PPL, PNG Power Limited, is the integrated state-owned power company.

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    The country has large gas reserves: proven reserves are estimated at 216 bcm (end of 2019) and have decreased by 18% since 2010. Proven oil reserves are 15 Mt. The country also has a strong geothermal potential, estimated at between 3-4 GW. The solar potential is large (about 2 500 hours of sunshine per year in Port Moresby).

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita reached 0.52 toe in 2018. Electricity consumption per capita is 580 kWh (2018).

    Total energy consumption increased by 12% in 2018. It is mainly covered by oil (48%) and biomass (33%). Hydropower and geothermal (primary electricity) and gas cover the remainder (10% and 9%, respectively).

  • Issues & Prospects

    In the APEC 7th edition of Energy Demand and Supply Outlook report, primary energy demand is projected to increase from 2.4 Mtoe in 2016 to 5 Mtoe in 2050 (BAU scenario).
